“Lured by the Croc”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2014

Stopped in for some refreshing ales after noticing the big ( fake) croc out the front of the bar. What a great find - cold towels cold beer super clean toilets and grata friendly staff, certainly a great clean place to hang out and people watch.

“Great for drinks, food reasonable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2014 via mobile

We visited here a few times on our trip to Bali. It is the pub in Seminyak with a big crocodile in the entrance (not real!). The drinks were great, good range of cocktails, well priced and good service. Meals were ok, probably a better place just to go for some drinks and bar snacks, hot chips etc. we would definitely visit again though! Good place to sit and watch the world go by.

“Overall, Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2014

I went here with a group of 5 others. The service was friendly and the place has a good atmosphere but I wasn't really a fan of the food. I ordered the vegetarian pizza and the sauce was ketchup. It was edible but I don't think I'd go back. That being said, it would be a good place to go for a few beers and a bowl of chips.

“"Great Food"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

My family and I ate here often whilst holidaying in Bali. It is the Pub with the big Alligator in the front. Good food, cold Bintang's, great menu for the kids and adults. This place is always busy so that has to be a good sign. Highly recommend it.

“Was Good Once”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 1, 2013

For some reason I decided to grab something to eat here, I think it was quite late and most other places were close to closing. I'd eaten here many years ago and the food was really good.
This time the food and the service was rather average.
The most annoying thing here was the live singer and keyboardist. The music was way too loud and made things very unpleasant. I ate up, paid the bill and got out of there as quick as possible.
Never again, especially when there are so many better choices out there.
